African Women in Media (AWiM) in partnership with Fojo Media Institute, have launched a Media Graduate Programme.

The stipend-supported programme targets women who have recently graduated from a media-related course within the last two years. The graduate trainees will undergo an 8-month development programme taking them through a comprehensive rotation of critical divisions of AWiM.

The first phase will recruit four graduates, and consist of two focal areas:

Editorial coaching to produce gender angle stories and develop stories for bylines on AWiMNews;
They will also spend two months each in four critical areas of AWiM to gain transferable skills which would help them succeed in an organisation.
Successful applicants would have graduated from a media-related course within the last two years and demonstrate a passion for journalism and women’s rights.

“We are very excited to launch this programme for women media graduates. It is a privilege for us to contribute to the development of new generations of media producers, nurturing their capacity to report on women’s issues. We are grateful for the support of Fojo Media Institute,” said Dr Yemisi Akinbobola, co-founder and CEO, African Women in Media.

“Fojo Media Institute is very grateful to have the opportyunity to once again partner with AWiM on this media development initiative contributing to gdenre equality in and through the media. Providing this platform to strengthen women journalists from across Africa through skills-building,” says Jean Mujati, Programme Coordinator, Fojo Media Institute.
